Terri Bucci is an associate professor in the Department of Teaching and Learning at The Ohio State University at Mansfield. Her areas of expertise and interest are in the fields of mathematics education and international teacher education, particularly primary school pre-service and in-service teacher education in Haiti. She is director of the Haiti Empowerment Project, which connects the human, intellectual, and fiscal resources of U.S. faculty of education with those of their Haitian colleagues. She is also interested in the connections between the five mathematical process standards (communications, connections, representations, problem solving, and reasoning and proof) and how these principles translate to teaching and teacher education across the curriculum. Her research focuses on the comparison between research paradigms and pedagogy in expert teachers of mathematics and on technology in teacher education. Holder of a teaching certificate in elementary teaching and secondary mathematics and general science teaching, she has four years of public school experience teaching middle school mathematics and science and ten years of experience teaching high school mathematics. She earned her B.A. at Michigan State University, an M.A. in mathematics and an M.A. in mathematics education, both from Ohio State, and a Ph.D., also from Ohio State.
